Annual Competition & Award
The Multi-level Performance (MLP) is a special competition held at the National Specialty Show once each year. There typically is no entry fee, but each dog must be registered in advance for the scores to count.
Each dog must compete in at least three different activities offered at the Specialty. Points are awarded based on the scores earned in each event, with the dog with the highest total points being declared the winner. The winner is announced at the Annual Awards Banquet and receives a bronze Bouvier statue. The Reserve winner also is honored with a smaller bronze statue.
